Butterscotch Chip Drop Cookies

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Chef shapeweaver

I found the original recipe for this cookie in Family Circle Magazine. I didn't have the ingredients that the recipe called for so I made a couple of changes and here is the result. It's really a very moist and chewy cookie. Baking time is for each cookie sheet. Recipe posted on March 13th, 2006.

Super simple recipe to prepare. And they taste pretty good too! I did find that the 36 cookies are larger than I normally make. Next time I would make smaller cookies.
